    Dear Sir,

    I was retired from Army on 01 Jan 1994 on rank of NK (TS) after completion of normal tenure of 15 years regular service.
    i would like to request to send me the complete eligible pension table for category "D" pensioners as per 7th OROP.

    Appreciated your early response.

  • Sir,
    Those retired from Army before 1986, why not issue wightage to OROP fixed ?.

  • Srinivasan R 7 years ago

    In view of GOI MOD Letter No.1(2)/2016-D(Pen/Pol) dt.30-09-2016 on de-linking of Qualifying Service of 33 years for revised Pension, which is given effect from 1.1.2006, the OROP revised w.e.f.1.7.2014 should also be revised without any Pro-rata reduction of pension even if the rendered Qualifying Service is less than 33 years at the time of retirement/Invalidment in terms of the above said GOI MOD Letter dated 30.09.2016 as per the full terms of engagement of the individual without any pro-rata reduction of Pension before giving effect of the 7th CPC revision of pension w.e.f. 01.01.2016.

  • why only ex-servicemen are not being paid pension and arrears as per vii cpc, this is the first time that a cpc is not being paid to veterans along with other cgpensionerts. is this govt. insulting veterans,

  • Note to Major General Satbir Singh: Now that the Union Cabinet has given its ex-post facto approval to the diluted version of the OROP adamantly for the veterans, it is time to approach the SC for remedy. The Reddy Commission's recommendations will be a lame duck in remedying our concerns as the things go. There is much time lost in getting our dues and this peaceful movement must at the earliest be taken to the SC for an early redressal. If we fail there too, we must resign to the gun pointed at us by this government.

  • Sir,
    I was retired as on 30.04.1994 after completion of 17 years 6 month 18 days as naik rank how much arrears will be issued. kaeshwar prasad.

  • Sir I had retired on 30 Apr 1994 as naik rank after completion 17 years 6 month 18 days.How much arrears will be issued?

  • and add " this anomaly may please be rectified in the 7th Pay Commission Reportas a special case. Posted by Subedar Major (Hony) Sreenivasan P.

  • All honorary rank holders fro Naik to Capt except Subedars granted honorary rank of Sub Maj have been granted pension less Re 1 or equal pension of the rank.

    I am an EX-SGT retired from IAF ON 30th April 2001 on completion of 20 years of service and held in the rank for 10 years (09 years 11 months). Now I would like to know whether ACP/MACP is applicable/consider while calculating my pension since the same is effected on post 2006 retirees.

  • Dear sir, please let me inform, about DA 100% wef 01/01/2014 is going to payment to the Ex-s pensioners.

    how one come to know about orop effecting date and arrears to be paid

  • Anonymous 11 years ago

    how one can come to know about orop effecting date and amt of arrears

  • There is nothing here regarding those JCOs/ORs who did not complete 10 months in their last rank held and are in receipt of pension of lower rank. The affected JCOs/ORs should get the arrears from 01 January 2006, as is the case and decision of SC for officers on "Minimum Pension guarantee".

    All top notch Babus in Military and PDAs should ascertain for correct fixation.

    I do not know how long one has to wait to get these pennies after this "improvement".

  • When will the OROP arrears be released??

  • It is an eyewash not OPOR. The JCOs have not been included in POBR or Commissioned Officer list. This is not an improved Pension for Exsmn. It is on par with civilians i.e. 50% of pay last drawn. It is way how exsmn are cheated by the Bureaucrats.

    • Anonymous 11 years ago

      I fully agree. These circulars are just eyewash produced by ignorant Babus

  • sir pleas tell me orop amount wan will be give

  • Anonymous 11 years ago

    decision is not justified to JCOs and its equs

  • Pankaj Singh 11 years ago


  • Prakash Kulkarni 11 years ago


    Why only JCOs have been denied the revised benefits? The commission must have clarified about this in his report.

  • Anonymous 11 years ago

    ARE you taking it as OROP ? It is the rectification of the recommendations of 6th CPC,ie; minimum pay in the pay band corresponding to pre- revised pay scales , mis-interpretation by the babulog.
